[BROOKLYN, NEW YORK]- Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF) announces the film lineup for its 27th edition, Immersion. The 2024 edition will feature 36 World Premieres, 16 US premieres, 24 east coast debuts, and 43 first-time screenings in NY. In total, BFF will show, in competition, 138 features and shorts from 35 countries. The full lineup includes 12 narrative features and 10 documentary features, highlighted in this release. The festival will also present 40 narrative shorts, 24 documentary shorts, 28 animations, and 24 experimental films. Furthermore, 20 films will be shown, online only, as part of kidsfilmfest, now in its 20th year.

On May 31, BFF will open the festival with the East Coast premiere of the historical and poetic story, a choral in structure, a hybrid between documentary and fiction, Atikamekw Suns. Directed by Chloé Leriche, it is the story of tragic loss and is freely inspired by the dreams, impressions, and memories of the victims’ loved ones.

Over the course of the 10-day festival, BFF will present 42 two-hour film programs, 29 of which will be shown at Windmill Studios in Greenpoint, and 11 at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg. The online lineup (all the films selected) will be available 24/7 from June 1–9. Tickets for theater screenings can be purchased in advance, online.

Along with the film screenings, BFF will offer additional events — both on social media and on the festival website. The video server will once again be hosted by Cinesend. BFF’s list of sponsors for 2024 include: Brooklyn Film Society, Windmill Studios, Cinelease, Québec Government, PRG, Jack Studios, AbelCine, Be Electric, Phygital FX, MPE, Big Screen Plaza, Media Services, Yelp, Lentini Communications, The Pod, Wythe Hotel, Moxy and Noble Jewelry.
